Then, we create a new file containing the word Hello. 3. The ln command links the original file to a new name, the_samefile. We now have two filenames that point to the same metadata. The hard link count of both files will be two; the names point to the same metadata. 4. Using the ls command with the option for the long listing, -l, will display the hard link count. The option, -i, will display the inode number of the file. The inode number of both files will be the same. As hard links share the same inode number, the source and target file must be on the same filesystem.

The kernel directive simply points to the kernel file with a path relative to the root of the boot partition along with any options that we may wish to pass through to the kernel when it is loaded.
